So you want to have two rocketdocks open at the same time? It would be best to ask the people making the software, as I am sure that modifications will have to be made to the program to allow a second instance.

I would suggest you to try Objectdock :) I dont know if you can use multiple docks in the free version, but i know you can in the paid version.

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

I have not used rocketdock for a while but they did used to have an option to store all settings in an INI file rather than the registry.

if this option is still valid it should be possible to install the application to two different locations, and call each separately, as the settings would be independent, each could be set-up to appear in two separate edges of the screen.


Due to the way that RocketDock saves the INI files to the Program files area and the security of win7, you will need to take ownership and full control of the application directories

Try XP Mode :P

install another rocket dock in there!

if you don't have pro or higher, use VMLite for your needs!

Installing another rocketdock into a VM would not help the matter, as all apps on it would have to be installed within the VM.

You can try renaming the .exe of the first installation to rocketdock2.exe, then install another instance of the program to, say, Rocketdock1...?Hope that works.
